No Skaters lately, snow & it's cold

A HUGE thanks goes out to Andre Saturday! He fired up the blower and threw the snow off both sheets. Been too cold to flood these past few days and the with the Grey Cup game tonight, lets meet Monday and the rest of the week at 7:00 PM. Weather looks ideal for numerous coats, the ice is still a bit rough so as much water as we can throw down the better. Captain Kurt.Go Stamps Go !
May the Horse be With You.

The 2014 -15 Season has Started as of Nov.12th 2014

Hello ALL, OK, Great work to; Andre, Jamie and his son, Mattie, Grant and his daughter, Danielle, Kurt and his daughter,Paulina, who showed up to pack and flood… Way to go! Thanks Grant for the great packing again and making the job look easy with your truck. We have a good base on the upper. It took us about an hour but we got some good crust going up there. Tomorrow night we will get the lower started and do as much as we can. I think we better really soak the thing tomorrow. The new hose worked out great no leaks in the connection and it drains real nice. With the storage container and bin in the way it does make it difficult to navigate the hose. I will get the bin moved next time in front of the man door to give us some more room. We are a GO for tomorrow at 7 PM (JR is dropping off your Potato orders), Friday 7 PM and Saturday Morning around 9:30 AM, Sunday night 7 PM… Then we will see how the week goes next week. Don’t forget Pub night is this Saturday night around 7 PM. Cheers Kurt Westergard a.k.a. Captain Kurt The Rosemont Ice Guys Team

This week

Wednesday Night… Grant is bringing his truck down on Wednesday night (6:30PM) to pack the base. This usually take about an hour we only need a couple of guys to help rig up his truck and watch him turn the field. Let me know if you can help. Thursday night at 7 PM… “JR” is bringing you your Potato and honey orders and we can settle up with him. We will start the flooding/SLURPIE as well this will take a couple of hours with taking turns on the hose. More guys the better…
